Is this proof of a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ phablet?

Samsung might be working on a super-secret sequel to this year’s Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

That’s the theory because Samsung has just trademarked the device branding “S6 Edge+”, a name which has never been officially mentioned by the company.

The trademark was first applied for back on June 26, as spotted by the folks over at GalaxyClub.

The US Patent and Trademark Office turned around the application in double-time, and had approved the branding by June 30.

It’s also important to note that the name is specifically protected for smartphones, although that’s not exactly surprising.

We’ve already heard rumours trickle out regarding two new devices that will ship in phablet form factors – that gels well with the Edge+ moniker.

It’s been previously alleged that these devices will be different from the standard Galaxy Note series releases that we’ve come to expect towards the end of each year.

The suggestion is that one of the devices will be an Edge sequel, while the other will follow-on from the standard S6.

One rumour pointed to Samsung opting to use a Snapdragon 808 chip inside the S6+, rather than the Exynos processor that appeared in the S6 proper.

The Snapdragon 808 has already ventured into the public eye a la the LG G4, so using the Snapdragon 810 predecessor on a flagship device isn’t unprecedented.
